Answers :

With the help of technology, yes. There is still a way for you to recover it. Download this software, install to your computer and then follow the instructions on how to recover your files.

By the way, until you have not recovered the files, please make sure that you will not use the card and store more photos on it. This is to help you ensure that you would still get the photos you need on the formatted card.

Here is one of the many softwares you can use for data recovery:

Yes, there are ways for you to retrieve your lost photos back from a camera memory card as long as these photos are not overwritten by anything new on it.
\012 What you should do is really simple:
\012 Firstly, stop using this camera memory card immediately in case that any new file would overwrite your original photos and make them gone permanently. So, you should take care!
\012 Secondly, plunge this phone to your computer and prepare to retrieve all your deleted pictures.
\012 Thirdly, apply a photo recovery freeware to retrieve all your lost photos back successfully:
\012 http://sd-card-format-recovery.blogspot.com/2013/11/recover-sd-card-after-formatting.html
\012 I believe this data recovery freeware can work perfectly on your phone memory card just in the same way as it completely retrieves all the deleted data of my friend off from his phone memory card.
\012 Just give it a shot here: http://www.4cardrecovery.com/
\012 Fourthly, save and back up all the restored photos on a different memory card or drive in case of data recovery failure.
\012 Note: Never forget to back up everything important at least on two memory cards or locations in the future.
\012 Good luck!

Card setup When I turn on the camera, it goes straight into "Card Setup". My only options are to "Format" (i.e. erase the memory card) or "Power Off".
